TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- James Meade kicked a 39-yard field goal with 16 seconds left to lift Morgan State to a 13-10 win over Florida A&M on Saturday.

Meade's kick gave Morgan State (6-3, 4-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) its fourth consecutive victory.

The Bears' Devan James rushed for 99 yards, scoring on a 4-yard run in the second quarter, to increase his season's total to 1,077 yards.

Morgan State held Florida A&M (6-3, 2-3 MEAC) to 137 yards, including 1 yard in the fourth quarter.

Florida A&M's Eddie Battle was 8 of 14 for 84 yards as the Rattlers' three-game winning streak came to an end.

Morgan State never trailed, taking a 3-0 lead with 11 minutes left in the first quarter on Meade's 40-yard field goal.

After James' touchdown gave the Bears a 10-0 lead, Florida A&M scored on a 3-yard pass from Pulley to Mykel Benson with 23 seconds left in the first half.

Florida A&M's Trevor Scott kicked a 37-yard field goal with 8:40 left in the third quarter to tie the score.

The Rattlers had a chance to take the lead later in the quarter, but Scott's 43-yard field goal was nullified by a holding penalty.

Meade's game-winning field goal came at the end of an 11-play, 41-yard drive.
